Little Henry Dwarf Virginia Sweetspire

Itea virginica, commonly known as the Virginia Sweetspire, is native to the southeastern United States, where it is found in swamps, wet woodlands, and along streambanks. It is best known for its long, cylindrical, drooping clusters of small, white, fragrant flowers. The “Little Henry” cultivar variety is the dwarf version of the native species of the plant, normally growing 3 to 4 feet high and wide with 3 to 4 inch flower spikes. This compact deciduous shrub is best grown in moist, rich soils and full sun to part shade. Its leaves turn red, orange and gold colors in fall
